Trust has always been one of banking’s biggest values, but in the 21st century where digital is the prevailing theme, trust has become even more central to the conversation, BBVA Global Head of Security Architecture Juan Francisco Losa said in an address at American Banker’s Cybersec conference in New York City this week.

There is no turning back. Technology is here to stay and whoever is not able to adapt to it will not only lose information opportunities, but will be left out of the market. The mass adoption of smartphones, tablets and other digital platforms has put Chile at the top of the connectivity rankings in the region and has changed the way in which people interact with each other and with companies. BBVA is one of the pioneers in Chile’s digitization process.

According to country manager Manuel Olivares, in the nearly 20 years that the group has been in Chile, BBVA has been an important actor in the country’s development process.  “Not only have we financed important government construction projects, not only do we employ nearly 5,000 people, but we have also worked side by side to improve access to banking services."

Hello everyone!

Our presence in Chile dates back to 1998, when then-still BBV became the largest shareholder in BHIF (Banco Hipotecario Internacional Financiero, or International Financial Mortgage Bank). Eighteen years later, we have grown from a small bank with a business largely focused on the mortgage lending market, into a diversified institution offering universal banking services and products, which has proven its ability to grow in one of Latin America’s most demanding, innovative and competitive environments.
